We love Gossips

We love Gossips café - been coming for years. Decent lunches and teas with wonderful views of the harbour from almost every table - watch the ferries coming in and the yachts getting in their way! Service is efficient even when they are really busy - which is most of the time

Me and my parent were hungry as we didn't have a good breakfast, we saw this place last and we had a good chance of not going in but we gave it a chance, and that chance was a good one! The food came in a good amount of time, and was filing enough, i went to queue for something... More

Had lunch in this restaurant last week. It was very busy however the service was very good and the food excellent. We had baguette melts and paninis and the fillings were very generous. We were disappointed that we couldn't manage one of the terrific cakes which were all reasonably priced. Maybe another day.

The best coffee so far . Rubbish solid scrambled eggs and seemingly typical IOW service.....like they're not quite used to people? Very strange. Maybe it's Yarmouth? There's no real choice so no real competition.

Great range of dishes available to choose from all of a decent quality, a great view of the sea right out the back windows. A small cover charge is added to your bill FYI.

We were lucky enough to find a table for 8 on a busy and sunny Saturday - the staff were helpful and friendly and our food didn't take long to come. It was of wonderful quality with loads to choose from. It was filling which was a pity as we didn't have room for all the delicious looking desserts! Lovely... More

can imagine this place gets really busy- lovely view right by the pier- sat outside. nice crab baguette- friendly happy staff apart from one who didn't even make eye contact at the till when taking your money- probably just concentrating and busy but shame, as just let it down a bit.

First stop on a one night away trip with my son on motorbike - thought we would have a cooked breakfast and skip lunch- this is my second visit to here and I wasn't disappointed. A good hearty breakfast at a reasonable price with swift service- what more could one ask for. Well worth a visit and an extensive menu.... More
